Well guys this post is a little late as I thought I had posted it already, but then realized I hadn't, so please forgive me. I created this layout using the XPCS Basic Shapes and Tags books as part of a Design Team assignment for QVC. I created a replica of Times Square and the ball dropping on New Year's Eve. I just LOVED this layout and really had a hard time letting it go to send it in for submission!!!
I received the entire new Love Letters line from Little Yellow Bicycle to create some Design Team items with and I just LOVE it. The flocked papers, die cuts, transparencies, stickers and stamps were all fabulous!!! Since my 15th wedding anniversary is coming up February 12th I decided to create a page with my own wedding photo to honor the occasion and another page using a photo of my hubby and I when we were still just dating. I created a special heart shaped card to celebrate the occasion as well.

I knew just what I wanted to create when I received this cool line of owl paper and embellishments by Sassafras Lass for some Design Team projects. Since our Owsley County mascot is of course the owl my niece's cheerleading photos were just the perfect subject matter. I hand cut the owls and created the branches from the matching stamps. I used some of the circle embellishments for the Os in the title. Wish our cheerleaders luck as they have their competition on Saturday.
This is one of my favorite layouts that I have created recently. The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny. I used AC Thickers for the title, Prima flowers, black buttons, Jenni Bowlin journaling cards and Doodlebug Dream stamp. I hadn't used the sewing machine in awhile, so I decided to pull it out for this project. I did a zig zag stitch up the side of the title strip with black thread and then hand stitched the half circle. This photo of Marley was taken Christmas morning after she was worn out from getting up early to see if Santa came.
We discussed on an IRW conference call about getting back to basics and scrapping with just cardstock as a way for many to continue to scrap during this economic crunch. We don't always need the latest and greatest in scrapbooking supplies to make awesome layouts! So, here is a layout as a sample of just that. I used Bazzill Blue Jean and Black cardstock, my Wishblade to creat the title, a few flowers and brads, a Maya Road calendar turn and chipboard scallop piece inked with black and a UK Wildcate I printed off the web. I created the scallop edge with the Fiskars Threading Water punch and added glitter to my title to give it a little bling.
